Train has weathered a number of lineup changes over the years. Now there’s another one: drummerScott Underwood is exiting the band.
“I’ve been in this band for twenty years. I have had the most amazing time, and a life that is incredible,” Scott writes on the band’s website in a farewell note to fans. “I will always cherish my 20 years in Train, and am so proud to be a part of that legacy. I only wish I could have met more of you during that time.”
He calls singer Pat Monahan and guitarist Jimmy Stafford his “brothers,” adding, “I’ll always be grateful to them. But none of us would have been anything without you guys. We know it, and will never forget it. YOU made our dreams come true! My family and I thank you so much.”
What are Scott’s plans? “From this point forward I’m really excited about my future of writing, producing, collaborating, and drumming. There are so many possibilities out there, so many forms of music I want to explore, and so many people I look forward to meeting,” he explains. “I also plan on coming out to the occasional Train show to make sure they’re toeing the line! Kidding… Pat, Jimmy and their amazing band will never disappoint.”
It’s not clear who’ll be behind the drum kit when the band performs next week on NBC’s Today show summer concert series.
